2019. Zozaya, Stephen M., Higgie, Megan, Moritz, Craig, and Hoskin, Conrad J. Animals use mating traits to compete for, attract, and choose mates. Because mating traits influence mate choice, the divergence of mating traits b... The American Naturalist.
2. Data from: Behavioral and morphological traits interact to promote the evolution of alternative reproductive tactics in a lizard
2019. Wechmann, Kerrie, Noble, Daniel W. A., Keogh, J. Scott, and Whiting, Martin J. Alternative reproductive tactics (ARTs) are predicted to be the result of disruptive correlational selection on suites of morphological, physiologi... The American Naturalist.
3. Data from: Brood parasitism is linked to egg pattern diversity within and among species of Australian passerines
2019. Medina, Iliana, Troscianko, Jolyon, Stevens, Martin, and Langmore, Naomi Elizabeth. Bird eggs show striking diversity in color and pattern. One explanation for this is that interactions between avian brood parasites and their hosts... The American Naturalist.
2019. Smith, Kathleen R., Cadena, Viviana, Endler, John A., Kearney, Michael R., Porter, Warren P., and Stuart-Fox, Devi. Animal coloration has multiple functions including thermoregulation, camouflage, and social signaling, and the requirements of each function may so... The American Naturalist.
5. Data from: Conspicuous plumage does not increase predation risk: a continent-wide test using model songbirds
2019. Cain, Kristal E., Hall, Michelle L., Medina, Illiana, Leitao, Ana V., Delhey, Kaspar, Brouwer, Lyanne, Peters, Anne, Pruett-Jones, Stephen, Webster, Michael S., Langmore, Naomi E., and Mulder, Raoul A. The forces shaping female plumage color have long been debated but remain unresolved. Females may benefit from conspicuous colors but are also expe... The American Naturalist.
2019. Gill, Katherine P., van Wilgenburg, Ellen, Macmillan, David L., and Elgar, Mark A. Effective communication requires reliable signals and competent receptors. Theoretical and empirical accounts of animal signaling focus overwhelmin... The American Naturalist.
7. Data from: Ecological divergence, adaptive diversification, and the evolution of social signaling traits: an empirical study in arid Australian lizards
2019. Edwards, Danielle L., Melville, Jane, Joseph, Leo, and Keogh, J. Scott. Species diversification often results from divergent evolution of ecological or social signaling traits. Theoretically, a combination of the two ma... The American Naturalist.
2019. Walter, Gregory Matthew, Aguirre, J. David, Blows, Mark W., and Ortiz-Barrientos, Daniel. Genetic correlations between traits can concentrate genetic variance into fewer phenotypic dimensions that can bias evolutionary trajectories along... The American Naturalist.
9. Data from: Faster isn't always better: selection on growth rate fluctuates across the life history and environments
2019. Monro, Keyne and Marshall, Dustin J. Growth rate is increasingly recognised as a key life-history trait that may affect fitness directly, rather than evolving as a by-product of select... The American Naturalist.
10. Data from: Geographical variation in bill size across bird species provides evidence for Allen’s rule
2019. Symonds, Matthew R. E. and Tattersall, Glenn J. Allen’s rule proposes that the appendages of endotherms are smaller, relative to body size, in colder climates, in order to reduce heat loss. Empir... The American Naturalist.
